Listen: Lorenzo, Valentine Rossi, Maverick discussed on MotoWeek - MotoGP, Motorcycle and Racing News
"I mean, that's what we've seen outta Marc Marquez considering the fact that the Honda is much more difficult for everyone else in the world derived but him it's not like it's easy for him. The ride he's just able to make up that difference and compensate for the bikes deficiencies better than everyone else. And we've also seen that out of Andre ditsy. Also, I mean, the Dakota wasn't always great. But starting in late two thousand sixteen and going into two thousand seventeen when it wasn't quite there yet. Well, he came out of nowhere and started performing really really well why because they got the bike closer and he made up the difference for the bikes remaining deficiencies. Well, that could it could be the situation that Yamaha's him right now. Now in which case mic. You're right. Not only is it time for maverick. But it's also time for Valentine Rossi to be that same type of rider and make up the rest of the difference between what the bike can't do and what it needs to be able to do to be able to win races. And, you know, even if maverick than y'all is Lorenzo type of rider because you know, we compare them on the show a lot other people do as well, they say maverick fan yellows where he'll Lorenzo made in the same mould where manna just has to be perfect for him. But think about it this way, it wasn't like Hori Lorenza was the main focus when he showed up on the scene with back in two thousand eight that was a Valentine Rossi bike, and it wasn't going to be anything. But a Valentine Rossi bike at that point. But Lorenzo was able to make it work and win a championship in his third year. So now vanilla is going into his third year. Presumably with a better bike. I don't think that he'll necessarily have to win the title disdain Yamaha's good graces at the end of the year. But he certainly does need. To find a way to step up his game. The same way that we saw where he Lorenzo step up his game in his first couple of seasons. Even if the bike isn't one hundred percent perfect, even if it isn't one hundred percent to his liking, even if it is still just a little bit Rossi's bike or even if it's mostly Rossi's bike as long as it's close to what he's able to ride then he has to get in there and make a big difference. And you know, the better the Franken Morbidelli performs over a patrol us the more pressure. Maverick fan, y'all is gonna feel because all Moto GP riders know that someone is waiting in the wings to take their spot. And right now Morbidelli is potentially that person for maverick vanilla especially being very Forty-six academy rider. So he's probably lucky Mavericks analysis that Petco bag nyah was up by Coty so quickly or else the writing would really be on the wall this year for maverick that it's time to figure out how to produce results or you know, in twenty twenty. One. You might be making a lot of phone calls. Trying to get a ride RCB chip had a little bit more optimistic view of not only Allah has efforts in Sapang. But those of do khadi and Suzuki coming out of that test as well. In fact, he's a Honda fan. And he said I'm a little bit worried about H R C at this point heading into the season. Of course, we haven't seen hail Renzo and a Honda yet this year, we're going to see him this weekend. But then that's part of the problem too. Since he missed out on entire test. And really fifty percent of his prime development. Get comfortable get fast on the bike time. Now, the good news for Honda is that Cal crutch low seemed to recover surprisingly quickly coming back from his injury and his layoff from last year.."
